Lol totally forgot how awesome this essay is...
Neal Stephenson - In the beginning was the command line
#OpenBSD, system daemons Show more
Lot of time lately learning about sys init frameworks. Spent all day yesterday with OpenBSD's rc.d
I need to start a blog for this shit but takeaways I wish I had zeroed in on earlier:
* make sure /bin/sh will load expected env vars
* rc_check def is critical for start / stop success / failure status
* read examples in /etc/rc.d
* test ultimate cmds in sh
Food, time, money, mental health Show more
Fuckin postmates. This wouldn't make me mad if I knew all that money went to the driver but they play ridiculous fucking games with pricing and exploit the shit out of their workers.
I spend far too much time fretting over food. Consistently... time, money, energy, motivation, supplies, tranportation, etc get in the way and I spend an inordinate amount of time hungry and stressing.
climate change, air quality, #pdx Show more
PSA, poor air quality in #pdx. If you've gotta be outside, I'd recommend wearing an n95 mask. They sell them at hardware / painting stores. Buy a box and pass some out.
If you don't have one / can't afford one / can't find one nearby and can get to SE (Near Woodstock and 52nd, I currently have a few extra for folks).
surgical masks are useless; use an n95 mask. Plz hand out to houseless folks if you're in the position to do so and they would like one
lol, also huge coding refactors are like this deliciously unsettling affair where you're tearing up code, slash slash, delete delete, rework logic
And then there's this fucking moment - the culmination - where everything starts to lock in and it's like two long-bars in tetris and everything is clean and sharp and better. and then you push that goddamn commit like you robbed the place...
From DecolonizeNW on fb:
How you can help people travelling with the Honduran Exodus.
1. Give money to Pueblo Sin Fronteras - www.paypal.me/refugeecaravan
2. Pacific NW area folks: Contact [email protected] to see about becoming a host
3. Help educate people about the reasons for the exodus and fight dangerous racist misinformation
4. If you are a lawyer, translator, legal observer, health professional, or can give Know Your Rights Training, go to Tijuana to aid incoming asylum-seekers
See ya fuckin' later #amazon. Years of shopping, tons of video / music that will be lost cause you're terrible and don't let ppl download that shit anymore
Just moved over all my AWS infra and shut that shit down.
Also, every time I look up some shit about Marxism I am increasingly suspicious that this jargon is made up by sassy leftists trying to confuse basically everyone
exhibit A: meriam webster... uses term within definition. Fuckin shenanigans
exhibit B: wikipedia... wtf does any of that even mean?! I went to college (even almost graduated) and have read some books (some of which I even almost finished). But WAT?!
I call bullshit.
So, because the US is a horror show of injustice, we currently have asylum seekers locked up in Sheridan - cleared for release, but need bond to get out.
This is straight-up ransom, plain and simple. Help us get these men OUT, and help us end this unconscionable system.

Community organizer, computer programmer, unix nerd, anarcho-socialist (#nobot plz)
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
